For those of you who didn’t know, phpRedisAdmin is a simple web interface to manage Redis databases. Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets. Redis also supports datatypes such as Transitions, Publish and Subscribe. ‘Redis ’ is considered more powerful than ‘Memcache’ . It would be smart to bring ‘Redis’ into practice and put ‘Memcache’ down for a while.
This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo’ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step by step installation phpRedisAdmin on a CentOS 7 server.
Install phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7
Step 1. First let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date.
yum clean all
yum -y update
Step 2. Install Redis server.
If you do not have Redis server installed, you can follow our guide here.
Step 3. Install LAMP server.
A CentOS 7 LAMP stack server is required. If you do not have LAMP installed, you can follow our guide here. Also install required PHP modules:
yum install php-mysql php-gd php-ldap php-xml php-xmlrpc php-mbstring php-mcrypt curl zlib libtool-ltdl php-pdo
Create a virtual host for phpRedisAdmin:
Add the following lines:
CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com-access_log" combined
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
Require all granted
Step 4. Installing phpRedisAdmin.
First, Download phpRedisAdmin using git:
git clone https://github.com/ErikDubbelboer/phpRedisAdmin.git
git clone https://github.com/nrk/predis.git vendor
You may also want to copy includes/config.sample.inc.php to includes/config.inc.php and edit it with your specific redis configuration:
cp includes/config.sample.inc.php includes/config.inc.php
Move the directory to the virtual host location we setup earlier:
sudo chown -R apache: ~/phpRedisAdmin
sudo mv ~/phpRedisAdmin /var/www/html
Restart the apache service for the changes to take effects:
systemctl start httpd.service
systemctl enable httpd.service
Step 5. Accessing phpRedisAdmin.
phpRedisAdmin will be available on HTTP port 80 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to http://yourdomain.com/ or http://server-ip. If you are using a firewall, please open port 80 to enable access to the control panel.
